HYDRAULIC INVESTIGATIONS 

STREAM FLOW MEASUREMENTS 

The results of the measurements of flow of streams in the province during 
the year October 1, 1917 to September 30, 1918 are published herewith. 

There are forty-eight stations in the Province at which sysfematic deter- 
mination of stream flow is made. 

During the year, there arose the necessity of rearranging the organization 
of the hvdrometric branch to bring the expenditure within the amount designated 
as allowable for the work. This resulted in the closing of the district office at 
Ken or a from which had been conducted the investigations on rivers tributary 
to Rainy Lake, the Winnipeg and English Eivers. This office was amalgamated 
with the North Bay office and the least possible reduction was made in the staff 
of gauge readers, enabling the publication of estimates of flow at some of the 
metering sections in that district. As no discharge measurements during the ice 
season were made, however, estimates of flow for sections subject to variation from 
ice effect have not been made for that part of the year when the sections were 
thus affected. 

In many parts of the Province the winter season of 1917-1918 was abnormal 
in the matter of low temperature and the length of time without a thaw. The 
break up in the spring of 1918 was also exceptional as the rise of temperature 
came when more than the usual quantity of ice was on the rivers and it was carried 
along and broken before losing strength. This was the cause of greater jams on 
the rivers than is usually the case, more particularly in the south-western sections 
of the province. 

While the important rivers from a power or a statistical point of view in 
the part of the Province south and east of North Bay may be considered as satis- 
factorily under observation, the same can not be said of the far larger remaining 
portion. The most desirable locations for measurement of stream flow are not 
easily accessible, and distances and means of transportation are such that much 
time and money are spent in reaching sections that take very little time in 
observation. 

There is published herewith a table giving percentages of run-off to rainfall. 
The number of stations at which rainfall is continuously observed in some of the 
drainage basins is not large, and the percentages shown are sometimes based on 
the records of only one station in a large area, so that the rainfall recorded at 
such a station may differ very materially from the true mean for the area in 
question.

HYDRO-ELECTRIC POWER COMMISSION 



Black River near Washago 

Location — At the highway bridge known as Kennedy's Bridge, about 5 miles south- 
east of the Town of Washago, on lot 1, concession G, Township of Rama, County 
of Ontario. 

Records Available — Discharge measurements at first bridge from August, 1913, to 
January, 1914. Discharge measurements at Kennedy's Bridge from February, 1914, 
and daily gauge heights from May 5, 1915. 

Drainage Area — 585 square miles. 

Gauge— A ibench mark (elevation 30.00), painted on tie-rod on downstream side of 
bridge, is used in ascertaining the water elevation, by measuring down to the sur- 
face of the stream with a graduated staff. This is referred to a bench mark (eleva- 
tion 32.62) on north west corner of right abutment. 

Channel and Control — The channel is straight for 150 feet above and 700 feet below the 
gauging section. The banks and control can be considered permanent, as the 
velocity here is never very high. The bed of the stream is composed of rock. 

Discharge Measurements — Made from the bridge and wading section 500 feet above 
bridge at low water. 

Winter Flow — Owing to the somewhat sluggish flow at this section, ice from December 
to March forms to a great thickness, and relation of gauge height to discharge is 
seriously affected during that period. Measurements are made to determine the 
winter flow. 

Regulation — The flow at this section during May, June and July is controlled to a large 
extent by logging dams above. The operation of gates at these dams causes fluc- 
tuations in gauge heights, amounting to several feet at the gauge. At times logs 
lodge below section, causing considerable backwater. 

Accuracy — For three months in the early summer the river stage is subject to large 
fluctuations, and the accuracy of the discharge depends upon accuracy of mean daily 
gauge heights. Rating curve not well defined at all stages. 

Observer — Pearl Carrick, Washago.

ELEVENTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE 



No. 49 



Bonnechere River at Renfrew 

Location One-halt mile below Raglan St., Town of Renfrew, Township of Horton. 
Count \ of Renfrew, on the Barnett Estate. 



1916. Daily gauge 



Records Available— Discharge measurements from September 
readings from November 1, 1916. 

Drainage Area 910 square miles. 

Gauge — On the right bank of the river at the section, a box chain gauge with nine feet 
of standard gauge plates. Distance from end of weight to marker is 12.43 feet. 

Channel and Control — The channel is straight for 100 feet above and 300 feet below the 
station, but both above and below the station long sharp curves occur. There is 
a low clay bank on the right, and a high clay bank on the left. At extreme high 
water there may be an escape from this channel of some water from higher above 
the section to points below the section. The bed of the stream is composed of clean 
small stones. 

Regulation — The Round Lake Dam, the Golden Lake Dam for power purposes, and the 
dams on the upper river for lumbering purposes have large regulating effects on this 
river. The power plants in Renfrew, running twenty-four hours to their full 
capacity, and having little pondage, will not seriously affect the estimate of mean 
gauge heights. 

Observer — R. Dalton, Renfrew.

Madawaska River at Madawaska 

Location— 50 feet above the G.T. Ry. bridge, Canada Atlantic branch, 500 yards east 
of the Madawaska Station, Township of Murchison, District of Nipissi'ng. 

Records Available — Discharge measurement from September, 1915, and monthly 
thereafter, and gauge readings from September 27, 1915. 

Drainage Area— 800 square miles. 

Gauge — 0-3 feet of standard gauge plates secured vertically to pile, three feet west 
of face of east abutment. 3-9 feet of standard gauge plates secured vertically to 
approach to east abutment. 

Channel and Control — Channel is straight for about 400 feet above the section, curving 
slightly to the right under the bridge. The banks are sandy, and not liable to 
overflow. The bed of the river is soft, and there are some weeds above the section. 
The point of control is not clearly defined. 

Discharge Measurements — Made about fifty feet above gauge from a boat. 

Winter Flow — Affected iby ice conditions. 

Regulation — Lumber interests on the river above the section operate dams for driving 
purposes. 

Accuracy — Open water rating curve for ordinary stages changing slightly. 

Observer — G. Wormke, Madawaska.

ELEVENTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE 



No. 49 



Maganatawan River (North Branch) near Burk's Falls 

Location — One-half mile north of Burk's Falls station, 200 feet upstream from the Grand 
Trunk Railway bridge, v on lot 7, concession 10, Township of Armour, District of 
Parry Sound. 



Records Available — Monthly discharge measurement from June, 1915. 
readings from August 1, 1915. 



Daily gauge 



Drainage Area— 107 square miles. 

Gauge — Vertical steel staff with enamelled face fastened to a 2 x 4 scantling and con- 
nected to a wooden platform on the right shore about 250 feet above G.T.R. bridge. 
Zero of the gauge (elev. 28.14 feet) is referred to a bench mark (elev. 35.00 feet) 
painted on top of 5-ft. iron pipe 20 feet above gauging station, and a bench mark 
(elevation 49.53) painted on upstream side of left abutment of G.T.R. bridge. 

Channel and Control — Straight for about 200 feet above and 100 feet below the gauging 
station to the falls. The banks are high and wooded, and are not liable to over- 
flow. The bed of the stream is composed of clay and a few rocks, practically 
permanent. The velocity is moderate. 

Discharge, Measurements — Made by wading with a small Price current meter, in high 
water just above gauge, in low water 150 feet ,below gauge. 

Winter Flow — Relation of gauge height to discharge is slightly affected by ica. 
Measurements are taken to determine the winter flow. 

Accuracy — The rating curve is fairly well defined for lower gauge readings. 

Observer — Henry Stroud, Burk's Falls.

Maganatawan River (South Branch) near Burk's Falls 

Location — One-half mile south of Burk's Falls station, and 200 feet east of G.T. Ry. 
tracks on lot 8, concession 8, Township of Armour, Parry Sound District. 

Records Available — Discharge measurements from June, 1915. Daily gauge heights 
from August 1, 1915. 

Drainage Area — 257 square miles. 

Gauge — Vertical steel staff with enamelled lace, graduated in feet and inches, fastened 
to 2 x 8 scantling wedged between two hardwood trees on the left shore 200 feet 
above low water gauging station. Zero of the gauge (elev. 22.14 feet) is referred 
to a bench mark (elev. 35.00 feet) painted on top of a 5-ft. iron pipe located near 
the gauge on the north branch of the river, and a bench mark (elevation 28.77). 
which is the head of a nail driven horizontally in one of the trees to which gauge is 
fastened. 

Channel and Control — Straight for about 250 feet above and 500 feet below the rapids. 
The banks are high and wooded, and are not liable to overflow. The current is 
moderate. 

Discharge Measurements — Made ny wading with a small Price meter and from G.T.R. 
bridge, 1,500 feet below gauge. 

Winter Flow — Relation of gauge height to discharge is but slightly affected by ice. 
Measurements are taken to determine the winter flow. 

Regulation — Temporary dams above, which are used during log driving season, cause 
fluctuations at the gauge. 

Accuracy — Rating curve only fairly well defined. 

Observer — Henry Stroud, Burk's Falls.

ELEVENTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE 



No. 49 



Mississippi River at Ferguson's Falls 

Location— At the bridge on the road through the Village of Ferguson's Falls, near lots 
16 and 17, concession 12 Township of Drummond, County of Lanark. 

Records Available-Discharge measurements from July, 1915. and gauge readings from 
July 13, 1915. 

Drainage Area — 1,042 square miles. 

Gauge— to 6 feet of standard gauge plates secured to the inner face of the first pier 
from the south end of the bridge and near the downstream corner of the pier. 

Channel and Control — Channel is straight for 300 feet above and % mile below the 
gauging station. The banks are not liable to overflow. There are 7 channels, 
formed by the piers of the bridge. The present control is a short distance below 
the section, and ice action there will affect the discharge relation at low winter 
stages, but this will not be the point of control for high-water stages. At certain 
stages measurements are made 1,500 feet below bridge. 

Winter Flow — Discharge relation is affected by ice. 

Regulation — The river is regulated throughout its length by power and storage dams, 
as well as dams in connection with the timber industry. 

Accuracy — Open water flow relation is good. 

Observer — A. M. Sheppard, Fergusons' Falls.

Mississippi River at Galetta 

Location— In the VUlage of Galetta, Township of Fitzroy, County of Carleton, about 
one hundred feet above, and parallel to the highway bridge over the river. It is 
only a few hundred yards ibelow the dam and power house of the Galetta Power & 
Milling Company. 

Records Available— Discharge measurements from June, 1915, and gauge readings twice 
daily from June 24, 1915. 

Drainage Area— 1,456 square miles. 

Gauge— to 9 feet of standard gauge plates secured to the left abutment of the high- 
way bridge. This gauge was used till August 3rd, 1918, when construction work 
was started on new bridge. From August 4, to September 16, inclusive, readings 
were taken from temporary bench mark located 20 feet downstream from left abut- 
ment. On September 16th, when bridge was completed, a bench mark (elevation 
255.55) was established on ibridge 5 feet west of left abutment. Water elevations 
are secured by measuring to water surface with graduated staff. 

Channel and Control — Channel is straight for 200 feet above and below the section to 
a little rapid. The river bed is composed of gravel and stones, with solid rock on 
the right bank and gravel on the left bank. The point of control is through a 
solid rock formation a hundred and fifty yards below the section. 

Discharge Measurements— Made by wading and from a boat held up to tag line by 
cable. Extreme high-water measurements have to be made from the highway 
bridge. 

Winter Flow — The winter conditions do not seriously affect the gauge height and dis- 
charge relations. 

Regulation— The river is subject to regulation throughout its entire length. In the 
upper river are storage dams for power purposes, as well as timber dams for driving 
purposes. 



Accuracy — Piers of old bridge which have not been removed will likely change curve. 

Co-operatiQn — Discharge measurements made at the bridge iby the Department of Public 
works of Canada. 

Observer — J. P. Coyne, Galetta.

ELEVENTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE 



No. 49 



Mississippi River near Snow Road 

Location — At the highway bridge about two miles below the Village of Snow Road, 
Township of Sherbrooke, County of Lanark. 

Records Available— Discharge measurements from July, 1915, and gauge readings on 
week days since July 30, 1915. 

Drainage Area — 446 square miles. 

Gauge— to 6 ft. of standard gauge plates secured vertically to the downstream side 
of the right abutment of the highway bridge. The elevation of the zero on gauge 
is assumed as 100.00. 

Channel and Control — The channel approaches and leaves the section at a slight angle. 
The banks are high, and are not liable to overflow. The bridge pier forms two 
channels at the gauging section. Earth, rocks and gravel In the river bed, not 
shifting. Control for ordinary stages not well defined. At very high water stages 
the point of control is probably the head of the rapids just above High Falls. 

Discharge Measurements — Measurements made from bridge at all stages. 

Winter Flow — Discharge relation affected by ice. 

Regulation — The power and lumber companies operating on this river have storage 
dams above this point. 

Accuracy — No Sunday readings have been secured by gauge-readers, but the fluctuation 
in stage is slow. The open-water relation should be good. 

Observer — W. J. Jackson, Snow Road.

Moira River near Foxboro 

Location— Three hundred feet above G.T.R. Crossing, and six hundred feet east of 
Foxboro Station, on the G.T.R.-Belleville, Peterboro Branch. Near lot 5, conces- 
sion VI, Township of Thurlow, County of Hastings. 

Records Available— Monthly discharge measurements from September, 1915, and gauge 
readings from October 12, 1915. 

Drainage Area— 1,038 square miles. 

Gauge— A boxed chain gauge on the right bank of the river against a tree 400 feet 
above section. When the gauge reads zero the elevation of the water is 320.46. 

Channel and Control— At one side of the river at the section are iboulders and rocks, 
but the rest of the section is smooth, solid rock, liable to no movement at all. The 
control is only a few feet below the section and is not likely to freeze over in 
winter except for short periods of time. 

Discharge Measurements — At ordinary stages the measurements are made by wading, 
at tag line. At high water measurements are made by boat at a point opposite the 
gauge. 

Winter Flow — The relation of gauge height to discharge is but slightly affected by 
ice, and in a fairly uniform manner throughout the winter. 

Regulation — The river above the section has dams in many places besides the regula- 
tion for the lumber interest, on different tributary lakes and streams. 

Accuracy — Open water relation will be good.

Observer — C. Stewart, Foxboro P.O.

ELEVENTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE 



No. 49 



Muskoka River (South Branch) at Black's Bridge 

Location — At the highway bridge known as Black's Bridge, about five and one-half 
miles south of the Town of Bracebridge and two and one-half miles south of the 
Hydro-Electric Power Commission's plant at South Falls. 

Records Available — High water measurements have ibeen taken here since April 24th, 
1915, in conjunction with the Tretheway's Falls section which has been discon- 
tinued, gauge heights from June 4th, 1918. 

Drainage Area — 668 square miles. 

Gauge — -Twelve feet of standard gauge plates secured vertically to the downstream 
corner of right abutment. Zero of gauge from June 4th, to August 18th, 1918, was 
89.66 feet. On August 19th gauge was lowered to a new zero of 85.69 feet. Zero of 
gauge is referred to a bench mark (elevation 99.65) painted on downstream corner of 
right abutment, and also to a bench mark (elevation 100.17) which is the head of 
a nail driven horizontally in telephone pole one hundred feet downstream from right 
abutment. Head of nail is about five feet above ground and is plainly marked by 
painted arrow. 

Channel and Control — The channel is straight for about 150 feet above and 100 feet 
below section. Both banks are liable to overflow. Point of control is not clearly 
defined. Bed of stream is composed of sand. As the velocity is not high at any 
stage this is not liable to shift. At low stages there are three channels and at 
high stages five, these being formed by the bridge piers. 

Discharge Measurements — Made from the bridge at high and ordinary stages with 
small Price meter. At low stages measurements are made at the Tretheway's Falls 
bridge, one mile below. 

Winter Flow — Owing to the somewhat sluggish flow, ice will likely form to a great 
thickness. During the winter months, measurements will be made at the low water 
section. 

Regulation — The Provincial Department of Public Works operate the dam at Baysville 
controlling the run off from most of the drainage area. 

Accuracy — As yet only fairly well defined curve has been established here. 

Observer — Wesley Morrow, Muskoka Falls P.O.

ELEVENTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE 



No. 49 



Muskoka River (North Branch) near Port Sydney 

Location — At the highway ibridge near the Village o£ Port Sydney and 14 mile below 
Mary Lake, on lot 25, concession 5, Township of Stephenson, Muskoka District. 

Records Available — Discharge measurements from April, 1915. Daily gauge heights 
from April 16, 1915. 

Drainage Area — 560 square miles. 

Gauge — Vertical steel staff with enamelled face graduated in feet and inches and 
fastened to abutment on left upstream side of bridge. Zero of gauge (elev. 6.91 
feet) is referred to a bench mark (elev. 24.78 feet) painted on top of right abut- 
ment, downstream side, and a bench mark (elevation 17.73) painted on side of right 
abutment, upstream side. 

Channel — Straight for about 1,500 feet above and 500 feet below gauging station. Both 
banks are high, wooded, and not liable to overflow. The bed of the channel is com- 
posed of clay and gravel. 

Discharge Measurements — Made from highway bridge with a small Price current meter. 

Winter Flow — Open water conditions throughout the year. 

Regulation — The operation of dam at Mary Lake during certain periods of the year 
causes fluctuation at the gauge. 

Accuracy — The rating curve is well defined, and estimates of discharge are good. 

Observer — A. E. Mclnnes, Port Sydney.

Napanee River near Napanee 

Location — At Mink's Bridge, three miles from Napanee, near lot 1, concession 1, Town- 
ship of Camden, County of Addington. 

Records Available — Discharge measurements from August, 1915, and gauge readings 
from September 8, 1915. 

Drainage Area — 300 square miles. 

Gauge — A boxed chain gauge on the right bank of the river 400 feet above the section. 
Nine feet of standard gauge plates. When the gauge reads zero the elevation of the 
water is 97.93. Three feet of standard gauge plates secured to 2 x 6 scantling 
fastened to tree 10 feet west of chain gauge. This is used for extreme high water. 

> 

Channel and Control — The channel is curved above the section to within 20 feet of 
the bridge, and is straight for 300 feet below. The right bank is high, while the 
left is comparatively low and liaible to overflow. The bed of the stream is com- 
posed of rocks and gravel, not likely to shift. 

Discharge Measurements — Made by wading at low stages and from bridge at high 
stages. 

Winter Flow — Relation of gauge height to discharge is affected by ice. 

Regulation — There are several power developments on the upper part of the river, and 
also lumber dams on tributary waters. 

Accuracy — Two daily readings give only fair mean daily gauge heights. 

Observer — Mrs. Dan. O'Shaughnessy, Napanee.

ELEVENTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE 



No. 49 



Petawawa River near Petawawa 

Location- About l 1 -.. miles southwest of Petawawa station above C.P.R. bridge, near 
lot 15, concession 7, township of Petawawa, County of Renfrew. 

Records Available— Discharge measurements from October, 1915, and daily gauge heights 
from November 5, 1915. 

Drainage Area — 1,572 square miles. 

Gauge— Temporary mark used from December 15, 1915, to February 29, 1916, to obtain 
water elevations afterwards reduced to same datum as permanent gauge, screwed to 
plank, bolted to large rock in river, back of Rantz's house. 1,000 feet above the 
station, and 200 feet above the head of the rapids. This gauge has been used for 
gauge readings since March 1, 191(k 

Channel and Control — The controlling section is a few hundred yards above the meter- 
ing section. The river is straight for a few hundred feet each side of the section, 
but is crooked and fast for two miles .below the section. The soundings for depths 
are taken for each metering as the water is fast and the river bed of stones may 
change slightly between meterings, and the depths do not change the same as the 
gauge readings. 

Discharge Measurements — The discharge measurements for normal and low flows, sum- 
mer and winter, are made by wading in fast w r ater near the end of the straight 
stretch in the river downstream from the gauge. At high w'ater measurements are 
made from the road bridge leading to Petawawa Military Camp. 

Winter Flow — The control here is at fast water and only slightly affected by ice. 

Accuracy — Gauge readings twice daily give good mean daily gauge height as the 
fluctuation at the gauge is slow. 

Observer — Elsa Rantz, Petawawa.

Tay River near Glen Tay 

Location — Near lots 20 and 21, concession 11, Township of Bathurst, County of Lanark, 
At the highway bridge north of the Village of Glen Tay, and east of the auxiliary 
plant of the Canadian Electric & Water Company, Limited, of Perth and Ottawa. 



Records Available 
10, 1915. 



-Discharge measurements July, 1915, and gauge readings from July 



Drainage Area — 204 square miles. 

Gauge — Vertical steel staff to 3 feet fastened to the pier of bridge one foot above 
section. 

Channel and Control — The -channel is straight from the dam 150 feet above and straight 
for 250 feet below the section. The banks are high, and not liable to overflow. 
The bed of the river is composed of shale and stones, not shifting. The flow is 
confined between the bridge abutments at all stages. The control is a short 
distance (below the section, and the flood flow is likely to disturb it to some extent. 

I 

Discharge Measurements — Made by wading at ordinary stages, and from the bridge at 
very high stages. 

Winter Flow — Channel at section remains free from ice during winter, but relation of 
gauge height to discharge is affected by ice formation below the section. 

Regulation — The river is dammed immediately above the section and one mile further 
up, for power purposes, and the Department of Railways and Canals operate a dam 
at the foot of Bob's Lake for regulating canal purposes. 

Accuracy — The open-water rating will be very good. 

Observer — Paul Griffin, Manion P.O.

ELEVENTH ANNUAL REPORT OP^ THE 



No. 49 



York River near Bancroft 

Location — At the highway bridge one and a half miles below Bancroft, near lots 53 and 
54, west of the Hastings Road, Township of Faraday, County of Hastings. 



Records Available — Discharge measurements from July, 1915. 
from July 16, 1915. 



Daily gauge heights 



Drainage Area — 374 square miles. 

Gauge— Vertical standard gauge plates to 6 ft. secured on the upstream face of the 
right bridge pier near the west corner. 

Channel and Control — The channel is straight for 400 feet above and 250 feet below 
the section. The ibanks are high and sandy, not liable to overflow. The bed is 
composed of gravel. Flow takes places in three channels under the bridge at high 
stages, and in two channels at lower stages. 

Discharge Measurements — Made from the bridge at all stages. 

Winter Flow — Ice materially affects the open-water relation of gauge heights to dis- 
charge, and frazil ice at times makes meterings difficult. 

Regulation — The dam at Bancroft gives very small storage, and the plants there do 
not use the entire flow. On account of the electrical plant working at night, and 
the other mills during the day, daily gauge readings give fairly accurate figures 
for the mean daily stage. Some of the tributary streams are controlled by dams 
for storage and driving purposes for the lumber industry. 

Accuracy — As the river bed is composed of gravel, slight movement no doubt takes 
place without changing the general profile and section. 

Observer — A. R. McMillan, Bancroft.

ELEVENTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE 



No. 49 



aux Sables River at Massey 

Location — About 800 feet upstream from C. P. Ry. bridge and 14 mile northeast of rail- 
way station, in the Village of Massey, Township of Salter, Sudbury District. 

Records Available— Discharge measurements from August, 1914. Daily gauge heights 
from June 10, 1915. 

Drainage Area — 524 square miles. 

Gauge — A chain gauge has been established here reading zero with water at an eleva- 
tion of 15.94 referred to a B.M. elevation 29.76 painted on top of rock on left bank 
at entrance to rapids. The gauge is located twenty feet below the section. 

Channel and Control — Straight for 1,000 feet above and 100 feet below the gauging 
station to a rapid. Both banks are high, rocky, wooded, and are not liable to over- 
flow. The bed of the stream is composed of clay and gravel, practically permanent. 
The velocity is moderate, and one channel exists at all stages. 



Discharge Measurements — Made by wading during low water periods, 
measurements are made from boat with a Prica current meter. 



At high stages 



Regulation — The operation of logging dams above cause fluctuations in gauge heights 
during the log-driving season. 

Observer — Jas. Blight, Massey.

Blanche River near Englehart 

Location— At the highway bridge near the High Falls, 3% miles north-west of the Town 
of Englehart, north half of lot 12, concession 3, Township of Evanturel, Temis- 
kaming District. 



Records Available— Discharge measurements from August, 1914. 
October 8, 1914, with occasional omissions; 



Gauge heights from 



Drainage Area — 430 square miles. 

Gauge — Vertical steel staff 0-12 feet, located on the southeast downstream side of first 
pier. The zero of the gauge (elev. 8.00) is referred to B.M. elev. 23.39, painted on a 
conspicuous rock on the right bank 75 feet below the bridge. 

Channel — At a point 200 feet above the station, the river curves from the right and 
then flows straight, up to a point 700 feet below the station. Both banks are high, 
rocky, wooded, and will not overflow. The bed of the stream is composed of clay, 
practically permanent. The current is very slow, flowing through 2 channels at 
low stages and 3 channels during high water periods. 

Discharge Measurements- — Made from the highway bridge with a Price current meter. 

Winter Flow — During the winter months measurements are made through the ice to 
determine the winter discharge. The relation of gauge height to discharge is 
seriously affected by ice. 

Regulation — A temporary dam is built above the station during the summer months. 
This dam is used for storing water during the period when the river is used for 
log driving. The gauge heights at the section are, therefore, affected during the 
log driving periods. 

Accuracy — Rating curve fairly well defined between gauge heights 10.50 feet and 12.00 
feet. 

Observer — W. D. Groom, Englehart.

ELEVENTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE 



No. 49 



Frederickhouse River at Frederickhouse 

Location On the upstream side of the highway bridge crossing the river on the town- 
ship line between the Townships of Fournier and Clute, District of Temiskaming. 

Records Available — Discharge measurements and daily gauge heights from July, 1915, 
to September 30, 1917, were taken at thej railway crossing 1.8 miles north and 
downstream from the present point of observation and measurement. 

Drainage Area — 1,260 square miles. 

Gauge — Standard enamelled gauge plates 0-12 feet on the upstream side of the first 
pier from the left bank. Zero of the gauge is at an assumed elevation of 98.00 feet 
referred to a B.M. elev. 115.18, the top of an iron cap projecting above the floor of 
the bridge west of the west pier. 

Channel and Control — The current is slow, but even across the section, and through one 
channel, away from the bridge, where discharge measurements are made when pos- 
sible. Otherwise measurements are made from the bridge that breaks the flow into 
several channels. 

Discharge Measurements — Made by current meter from the bridge, ice, or boat. 

Regulation — There is no artificial control of the waters of this river above the new 
section. 

Accuracy — Logging operations have hampered metering during past year, and will 
more so in future. 

Observer — Allard Bourassa, Frederickhouse.

Kapuskasing River at Kapuskasing 

Location— About 500 feet downstream from the C. G. Railway's bridge, and 300 feet 
upstream from the C. G. Co.'s pump-house in, the Village of Kapuskasing. 

Records Available — Discharge measurement from March 23rd, 1918, gauge heights 
from May 10th, 1918. 

Drainage Area — 2,820 square miles. 

Gauge— A chain gauge consisting of weight held by chain, and three plates of H.E.P.C. 
standard gauge, has been installed. The gauge is located 75 feet upstream from 
the section. The initial point for soundings is a track spike driven in a 16-inch 
cedar tree on the north bank. 

Channel and Control— The channel is straight for 300 feet above and below the section. 
A small island exists at low water 75 feet below the section. The banks are high, 
rocky, slightly wooded, and are not liable to overflow. The ibed of the river consists 
of clean rock and is permanent. 

Discharge Measurements — Made from a boat with a small Price current meter. 

Winter Flow— The rating curve is affected by ice and measurements are taken to 
determine the flow. 

Observer — J. Ferguson, Kapuskasing, Ontario.

ELEVENTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE 



No. 49 



Mattagami River at Smooth Rock Falls 

Location— Lot 23, concession XI, Township of Kendry, Temiskaming District. About 
one mile below the plant of the Mattagami Pulp and Paper Co. at Smooth Rock 
Falls. 

Records Available — The Mattagami Pulp and Paper Co. take readings of the water 
below their plant, from which it is, expected estimates of flow may be made wken 
a curve is defined. 

Drainage Area — 3,970 square miles. 

Gauge — A chain gauge is installed reading zero with the elevation of the water at 
707.00, referred to a B.M. elev. 725.04. The B.M. is 10 feet S.W of the initial point 
for soundings the head of a nail driven in a blazed and painted tree. 

Channel and Control — A well-defined, evenly distributed current exists at all times. 
There is but one channel at all stages. Extreme high water is not likely to go over 
the river banks at this spot. The control point is not well defined, or as yet has not 
been ascertained. 

Regulation — Extensive storage works have been constructed for the purposes of regu- 
lating the headwaters of the river for the benefit of power plants. 

Discharge Measurements — Made by current meter from a boat or the ice. 

Winter Flow — The amount of ice effect on discharge is not yet determined, but will be 
considerable.

Mississagi River at Iron Bridge 

Location — At highway bridge in the village of Iron Bridge, south half of lot 3, con- 
cession 2, Township of Gladstone, District of Algoma. 



Records Available— Discharge measurements from September, 1915. 
heights from November 16, 1915. 



Daily gauge 



Drainage Area— 3,565 square miles. 

Gauge — Vertical steel staff with enamelled face graduated in feet and inches, to 6 
foot section placed on pile on left shore 350 feet down stream from bridge, 6 to 12 
foot section placed on down stream side of right abutment of bridge. Zero of the 
gauge (elev. 30.00) referred to bench mark (elev. 55.50 feet) on top of right abut- 
ment down stream side. 

Channel — Straight for about 300 feet above and about 1 mile below the gauging station. 
The bed of the stream consists of clay and sand, slightly shifting. 

Discharge Measurements — Made from highway bridge with small Price current meter. 

Control — About eleven miles below the gauging station there is a small falls and 
rapids known as the Mississagi rapids. Log jams sometimes occur on these rapids 
during low water period, which may cause back water at the gauging station. 

Winter Flow — During the winter months measurements are made through the ice to 
determine the winter flow. The relation of gauge height to discharge is seriously 
affected by ice. 

Accuracy — There is a slight, back water effect at the west end of the section during low 
stages. 

Observer — Nelson Winnock, Iron Bridge.

ELEVENTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE 



No. 49 



South River near Powassan 

Location — 75 feet below " Gough's " highway bridge on the Nipissing village road 2.5 
miles northwest of Powassan station and at the farm owned by Owen Gough 
between lots 20 and 21 and 14th and 15th concessions in the Township of Hims- 
worth, in the District of Parry Sound. 

Records Available — Discharge measurements from July 6, 1917, and before then at 
'* Healey's " bridge. Daily gauge heights from March 11. 1914. 

Drainage Area— 294 square miles. 

Gauge — Standard enamelled gauge plates 0-12 feet on the northwest corner of the left 
abutment. Elevation of the zero of the gauge 23.00 feet is referred toa B.M. eleva- 
tion assumed 56.15 feet painted on the top of a corner of barn foundation 350 feet 
from the section. 

Channel — Straight for about 200 feet above and 150 feet below the metering section. 
With high water conditions both banks are liable to overflow. The bed is largely 
composed of soft, black muck, likely to shift under high velocities. 

Discharge Measurements — Made with current meter from a boat at a section 100 feet 
below the bridge. 

Winter Flow — Measurements made through ice in the winter. Ordinary relations 
between gauge heights and discharge are seriously disturbed by ice conditions, and 
measurements are made in the winter to determine this effect. 

Accuracy — A fairly well defined rating curve has been established. 

Observer — Owen Gough, Powassan.

Spanish River at Webbwood 

Location — On the highway bridge about one and a half miles east of Webbwood station 
on the Sault Branch of the C.P.R. and eight miles below Espanola Mills. 

Records Available— Gauge readings daily from February 1, 1917. Discharge measure- 
ments monthly from January, 1917. 

Drainage Area — 4,340 square miles. 

Gauge — Vertical steel staff gauge 0-9 feet on third pier from north abutment and 9-12 
feet on fourth pier. 

Channel— The approach to the bridge Is straight for 300 feet above, and Ibelow the bridge 
for one-half mile. 

Discharge Measurements — During the open water season the measurements are made 
from the bridge and during the winter season the measurements are made from 
the ice under the bridge. 

Winter Flow — The relation between gauge readings and discharge is seriously dis- 
turbed during the winter months, but the ice effect is shown to be regular in 
direction. 

Regulation — The Spanish River Pulp and Paper Co., operate a plant a Espanola, eight 
miles above the section, which is partly shut down on Sundays, accounting for the 
fluctuation in gauge heights at the week ends. This company also has storage dams 
at various locations on the headwaters of this river for conserving the flow for both 
lumber and power purposes. 

Accuracy — The curve is based on 15 discharge measurements, the majority ibeing made 
during the current year. 

Observer— D. J. Stewart, Webbwood.

ELEVENTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE 



No. 49 



Sturgeon River at Smoky Falls 

Location— 75 feet upstream from the highway bridge at Smoky Falls Post Office, and 
two miles above the Smoky Falls, Township of Field, Xipissing District. 

Records Available— Discharge measurements from August, 1912. Daily gauge heights, 
January 12 to 31, 1914, and from March 15, 1914. 

Drainage Area — 2,570 square miles. 

Gauge — Vertical steel staff with enamelled face, graduated in feet and inches, and 
attached to a wooden! pile on the right, upstream side of the bridge. The zero of 
the gauge (elevation 32.00) is referred to a bench mark (elevation 53.47) painted 
on a rock on the right bank of the river, about 173 feet above the bridge. 

Channel — Straight for aibout 700 feet above and about 1 mile below the station. The 
banks are fairly high, clean, sandy and not liable to overflow. The bed of the 
stream is composed of clay and sand, slightly shifting. The current is fast and 
smooth. 

Discharge Measurements— Made from boat during all stages. 

Winter Flow — During the winter months the river is covered with ice, and .measure- 
ments are made through the ice to determine the winter discharge. The relation 
of gauge height to discharge is seriously affected by ice. 

Regulation — Dams above are used for storage and log driving purposes. 

Accuracy — The open water rating curve is fairly well defined. The relation of gaug-.- 
height to discharge is affected during the log-driving season. 

Observer — A. Pineault, Smoky Falls.

Vermilion River near Whitefish 

Location — At the C.P.R. bridge, two miles east of the Whitefish station, Township of 
Graham, District of Sudbury. 

"Records Available — Discharge measurements from August, 1913. Daily gauge heights 
from June 11, 1915. 

Drainage Area — 1.580 square miles. 

Gauge — Vertical steel staff with enamelled face graduated in feet and inches attached 
to pile at left abutment of old highway bridge. Zero of the gauge is at an elevation 
of 25.00 referred to a (bench mark elevation 38.39 painted on rock on right bank 
15 feet above section. 

Channel and Control — Straight for about 300 feet above and 700 feet below the station. 
Both banks are high, rocky and wooded, and not liable to overflow. Bed of stream 
is rocky and permanent, current is swift, two channels existing at all stages. At 
low stages log jams occur at the rapids, causing backwater on the gauge. 

Discharge Measurements — Made from the bridge with current meter. 

Winter Flow — The relation between the gauge heights and discharge is seriously 
affected by ice under some conditions. 

Accuracy — The relation between gauge heights and discharge have been so seriously 
disturbed by ice and log conditions during the past year that reliable estimates of 
flow have not been deemed possible on the information available. 

Observer — A. Boucher, Whitefish.

78 ELEVENTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE No. 49 



Eagle River at Eagle River 

Location — At the highway bridge, 1,000 feet south of the C. P. Ry. Crossing, in the 
Township of Aubrey, District of Kenora. This river is a tributary of the Wabigoon 
River. 

Records Available — Discharge measurements from January, 1914. Daily gauge heights 
from February, 12, 1914. 

Drainage Area— 970 square miles. 

Gauge — Vertical staff with enamelled face screwed to a 2 x 4 inch scantling, which is 
nailed to the south side of the bridge crib near the south-east corner, and next to 
the left bank of the river. The zero on the gauge (elev. 1,172.99) is referred to a 
bench mark (elev. 1,176.56, C.P.R. datum) painted on a point of rock on the left 
bank a few feet south-west of gauge. 

Channel and Control — Straight for about 100 feet above the station, with the water 
flowing slowly. Below the section the channel is straight for about 20 feet, with 
the water running swiftly to the " Cascades." The banks are clean, high, rocky and 
not liable to overflow. The bed consists of rock, and is permanent. At extreme 
highwater the flow is cut up iby the bridge piers, but under normal conditions the 
flow is all through one channel. 

Discharge Measurements — Made from the highway bridge with a small Price current 
meter. 

Winter Flow — Not affected by ice. The water at the section never freezes. 

Accuracy — The station rating curve is well defined. Fluctuation in gauge heights Is 
occasionally augmented by wind on Eagle Lake. This is in every way an excep- 
tionally good station. 

Observer — J. Nelson, Eagle River.

English River at Ear Falls 

Location — At the foot of Lac Seul, about three miles below, Pine Ridge Hudson's Bay 
Co's. Post, and about y 4 mile above upper Ear Falls, District of Kenora. 

Records Available — Discharge measurements from July, 1914. Weekly gauge heights 
are secured here and daily gauge heights at a gauge at Pine Ridge Post. 

Drainage Area— 11,700 square miles. 

Gauge — Vertical staff with enamelled face screwed to a 6-inch hewn spruce post which 
is firmly wedged in the rock of the left bank 200 feet below a 2-inch poplar, which 
is painted white and used as the initial point for soundings. The zero of the gauge 
(elev. 115.12) is referred to a bench mark (elev. 122.75) painted on a point of rock 
5 feet above the gauge. 

Channel and Control — Straight, for about 300 feet above and below the station, then 
turning to the left widens out to the top of the falls. Both banks are high, rocky 
and wooded, and will not overflow. The bed of the stream at the section is appar- 
ently permanent; the current sluggish, and flowing through one channel at all 
stages. The natural control is wide, shallow and unobstructed. 

Discharge Measurements — Made from a canoe with a small Price current meter. 

Winter Flow — Ice conditions have only slight effect. 

Accuracy — Back flow at the left bank causes a little difficulty in making accurate dis- 
charge measurements. 

Observer — Robert Young, care of Hudson Bay Go's. Lac Seul Post, Sioux Lookout P.O. 

Remarks — The very steady regimen of the English River, together with the lack of 
gauge readers, makes it possible and necessary to apply the gauge heights at Ear 
Falls to gauges at Manitou and Oak Falls. Gauge readings taken on nearly the 
same day were used in making up curves for the three stations, and the results 
obtained justify the assumptions made. No allowance is made for lag. With 
additional data it may ibe possible to extend the system to points farther down 
the river.

84 ELEVENTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE No. 49 



English River at Manitou Falls 

Location — About 800 feet above the first chute of the Manitou Falls, and five miles 
below the mouth of the Malta wa River. The Cedar River enters the English River 
•j mile below the metering section. 

Records Available — Discharge measurements from July, 1914. 

Drainage Area — 14,600 square miles. 

Gauge — Vertical staff with enamelled face screwed to a 6-inch pine post and firmly 
wedged and wired to the right bank 15 feet south of a 2-inch jack pine, which is 
used as the initial point for soundings. The zero of the gauge (elev. 89.37) is 
referred to a bench mark (elev. 100.43) painted on a point of rock 2.5 feet south- 
east of the initial point. 

Channel and Control — About 1,200 feet above the station the channel begins to narrow 
down and turns to the right out of the lake above. It is comparatively straight 
thence to the station and falls. Both (banks are high, rocky and wooded, and will 
not overflow. The bed of the stream is rocky and permanent. The current is slow 
above and moderately swift at the section. 

Discharge Measurements — Made from a canoe with a small Price current meter. 

Remarks — The very steady regimen of the English River, together with the lack of 
gauge readers, makes it possible and necessary to apply the gauge heights at Ear 
Falls to the gauge at Manitou Falls. Gauge readings taken on nearly the same day 
were used in making up curves for the two stations, and the results obtained 
justify the assumptions made. No allowance is made for " lag."

English River near Oak Falls 

Location — About one mile above the upper Oak Fall, just above Little Rapids, and about 
one-half mile below Wilcoxj Lake, District of Kenora. 

Records Available — Discharge measurements from August, 1914. 

Drainage Area— 15,570 squaro miles. 

Gauge — Vertical staff with enamelled face screwed to a cedar post and firmly wedged 
in rock on the right bank 200 feet above the metering section. The zero of the 
gauge (elev. 194.12) is referred to a bench mark (elev* 200.00) painted on a rock 
in the river near the right bank and 20 feet above the final point for soundings. 
The initial point for soundings is located on the left bank, and consists of the head 
of a nail driven in the side of a 12-inch poplar blazed and marked LP., N. 70° W. 

Channel and Control — Straight for about 300 feet above and % mile below the station. 
Both banks are high, rocky and wooded, and not liable to overflow. The bed of 
the stream is rocky and practically permanent. The current is sluggish above and 
moderately swift below the station, a small rapid existing about 800 feet below. 

Discharge Measurements — Made from a canoe with a small Price current meter. 

Remarks — The very steady regimen of the English River, together with the lack of 
gauge readers, makes it possible and necessary to apply the gauge heights at Ear 
Falls to the gauge at Oak Falls. Gauge readings taken on nearly the same day 
were used in making up curves for the two stations, and the results obtained 
justify the assumptions made. No allowance is made for " lag."

Turtle River at Mountain Rapids 

Location— About 300 feet above Mountain Rapids, and about 8 miles from the Olive 
Mine, 12 miles from Mine Centre, which is on the C. N. Ry., in the Rainy River 
District. 

Records Available — Monthly discharge measurements from August, 1914. Daily gauge 
heights from August 9, 1914. 

Drainage Area — 1,760 square miles. 

Gauge — Vertical steel staff gauge with enamelled face, graduated in feet and inches, 
and fastened on a crib pier at the C. N. Ry. saw mill, 12 miles from the station. 
The gauge is located 1,000 feet south of the mouth of Little Turtle River, on the 
east shore of Little Turtle Lake. Zero of gauge (elevation 82.99) is referred to a 
bench mark (assumed elevation 100.00) established on a rock with white paint, 
35 feet north-east of the gauge, at the C. N. Ry. mill at Mine Centre. 

Channel and Control — 'Straight for about 1,000 feet above and below the station, the 
water running slowly. The banks are high, wooded and rocky. The bed of the 
stream is sandy and clean, one channel existing at all stages. The river is used 
extensively for log driving, and the log jams in Otter Falls affect the section 
somewhat. 

Discharge Measurements — Made from a canoe with a small Price current meter. 

Winter Flow — The relation of gauge height to discharge is seriously affected by ice 
and measurements are made during the winter to determine the flow. 

Accuracy — Open water rating curve fairly well defined between gauge heights 91.50 
and 94.50. The relation of gauge height to discharge during the log-driving period 
is affected iby back water from log jams. 

Observer — Hiram Smith, Mine Centre.

96 ELEVENTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE No. 49 



Wabigoon River near Quibell 

Location — About 200 feet above the second fall from the G.T.P. Railway bridge, and 
'_. mile below the bridge which spans the first fall. One mile east from Quibell 
Station, Township of Wabigoon, District of Kenora. 

Records Available — Discharge measurements from June, 1914. 

Drainage Area — 2,400 square miles. 

Gauge — Vertical staff with enamelled face screwed to a 5-inch hewn spruce post firmly 
wedged and braced to the rock on the right bank of the river 1,200 feet above the 
metering svstem. Th zero of the gauge (elev. 1,061.64) is referred to a bench 
mark (elev. 1,069.46, G.T.P. datum) painted on a point of rock just ibelow the 
gauge. The initial point for soundings is a spike driven in the rock on the left 
bank. The gauge is read once a day during open season and once every other day 
during winter months. 

Channel and Control— 1,200 feet above the station the channel takes a sharp bend to 
the right, thence running comparatively straight to the station and falls. The 
water is sluggish a.bove and moderately swift at the station. The banks are high, 
rocky and wooded. The bed of the stream is full of boulders and crevices. One 
channel exists at all stages. 

Discharge Measurements — Made from canoe and ice with a small Price current meter. 

Regulation — The Dryden Pulp and Power Company operate a plant on the Wabigoon 
River at Dryden, which runs 24 hours per day with the exception of Sundays and 
holidays. 

Winter Flow — Ice formation is very heavy here, and the winter flow is somewhat dis- 
turbed by it. 

Accuracy — Rating curve fairly well defined, and estimates for open water flow only 
have been made. 

Observer — D. C. Warner, Quibell.

Daily gauge heights from April 25, 1915. 

Drainage Area — 100 square miles. 

Gauge— Vertical staff to 6 feet on tree on left bank 20 feet downstream from bridge. 
Zero of gauge is 0.00. 

Channel and Control — Channel straight above and below for a distance of 200 feet. 
The banks and control are permanent under ordinary conditions. The bed is com- 
posed of stones and gravel, one channel existing at all stages. 

Discharge Measurements — Made from the bridge during the high-water period, and 
from a permanent wading section located 20 feet above the bridge for the low- 
water stages. 

Regulation — The Hydro-Electric Power Commission's power plant locate! three-quarters 
of a mile upstream, though a twenty-four hour pow r er, has a marked effect on the 
river stage at this section. 

Accuracy — The rating curve is fairly well defined, but open-water estimates are sub 
ject to errors, due to fluctuations in stage caused by operation of power plant. 

Observer — A. Hill, Kimberley, P.O.

Credit River at Cataract Junction 

Location— About 500 feet from C.P.R. station at Cataract Junction, lot 14, concession 3, 
Township of Caledon, County of Peel. 

Records Available— Discharge measurements from June, 1912. Daily gauge heights 
from May 7, 1915. 

Drainage Area— 85 square miles. 

Gauge— Vertical staff to 6 feet on tree on right bank. Zero of gauge (elevation 8.00) 
is referred to a B.M. (elevation 10.00) painted on rock 100 feet downstream from 
metering section. 

Channel and Control— The channel is straight for about 350 feet above and 300 feet 
below the section. Thel right bank is low, and overflows during high stages. The 
bed is composed of gravel, which is shifting during flood stages. 

Discharge Measurements — Made at permanent wading section at all stages. 

Winter Flow— Relation of gauge height to discharge is affected by ice, and measure- 
ments are made to determine this flow. 

Regulation— The clam at Erin, about four miles upstream, causes serious fluctuations 
in the river stage at this section. Semi-daily gauge readings will not give a 
representative mean. 

Accuracy — A fairly well-defined rating curve has been established for this station. The 
accuracy of the estimates of discharge depends upon the accuracy of the mean daily 
gauge heights. 

Observer — Alfred Riches, Cataract Junction.

ELEVENTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE 



No. 49 



Rocky Saugeen River near Markdale 

Location — At the Glen Cross highway bridge, three-quarters of a mile above Hayward's 
Falls, near lot 5, concession 8, Township of Glenelg, County of Grey. 

Records Available — Discharge measurements and daily gauge heights from June 8, 1915. 

Drainage Area— 90 square miles. 

Gauge — Vertical staff to 6 feet* on the downstream side of the centre pier of bridge. 
The zero of gauge (elevation 0.00) is referred to a B.M. (elevation 29.65) painted 
on a rock projecting from bank 40 feet north from first telephone pole on left bank. 

Channel and Control — The channel is straight for 200 feet above and 500 feet below 
the station. The bed and banks are permanent, as flood conditions do not exist 
on this stream. 

Discharge Measurements — Made at a permanent wading section. When the river is 
extremely high measurements will be made from the bridge. 

Winter Flow — Ice has but little effect at this section and the open water curve is at all 
times applicable. 

Regulation— The dam above has little effect on the river stage at this section. 

Accuracy — The rating curve is well defined except for maximum flows. 

Observer — Mrs. Elizabeth Jack, Markdale.

Saugeen River near Port Elgin 

Location — At the highway bridge known as McCalder's Bridge, 4 miles north-east of 
the Town of Port Elgin, near lot 5, concession 12, Township of Saugeen, County of 
Bruce. 



Daily gauge heights 



Records Available—Discharge measurements from July, 1911. 
from April 19, 1914. 

Drainage Area — 1,565 square miles. 

Gauge — Vertical staff to 12 feet on left abutment downstream side. Zero of gauge 
(elevation 4.00) is referred to a B.M. (elevation 25.00) painted on wooden hand- 
rail of bridge. 

Channel and Control — The channel is straight for about 350 feet above and below the 
section. The bed of the stream, with two submerged piers at the section, is 
composed of fairly large boulders, which will only shift during high flood stages. 
The current is moderate and flows through two channels, which are separated by 
the centre pier of the ibridge. 

Discharge Measurements — Made from the bridge at all stages. 

Winter Flow — Ice greatly affects relation of gauge height to discharge. Measurements 
are made during the winter to determine the flow. 

Regulation— Fluctuations occur in the river stage at this section. This is no doubt 
caused by the plants at Walkerton, Chesley and Paisley. 

Accuracy — Semi-daily reading should give a fair representative mean. The fluctuations 
that have been noted are not large, consequently the gauge height records can be 
classified as good. A well-defined curve is shown for flows up to 20,000 sec. feet. A 
slight angle in cross-section No. 1, may affect accuracy of meter measurements. 

Observer — John Shanks, Southampton.

ELEVENTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE 



No. 49 



Saugeen River near Walkerton 

Location— At the south line bridge, 3 '/j miles above the Town of Walkerton, near lot 39, 
concession 2, Township of Brant, County of Bruce. 

Records Available Discharge measurements from June, 1912. Daily gauge heights 
from March 26, 1914. 

Drainage Area — 850 square miles. 

Gauge — Vertical staff 2 to 12 feet on right abutment. Zero of the gauge is 14.00 feet, 
which is referred to a B.M. (elevation 35.00) on tension rod of bridge. 

Channel and Control — Channel is straight for about 500 feet above and 'below the 
section. Both banks are high, and do not overflow. The river bed is composed of 
clay, one channel existing" at all stages. 

Discharge Measurements — Made from the bridge at all stages. 

Winter Flow — Ice greatly affects relation of gauge height to discharge. Measurements 
are made to determine the winter flow. 

Regulation — The dam at Walkerton, about 3K miles downstream, has 1 no effect on the 
river stage at this section. 

Accuracy — Weeds below this section in previous years had a deterrent effect on the 
velocity. The freshet of last spring, which was attended by such heavy ice, cleared 
the majority of this growth away and the records since then can be classed as good. 

Observer — James Preston, Walkerton.

Sydenham River near Owen Sound 

Location— At the highway bridge above the Town of Owen Sound's filtration plant, 
near lot 9, concession 1, Township of Derby, County of Grey. 

Records Available— Discharge measurements and daily gauge heights from June 9, 
1915. 

Drainage Area— 71 square miles. 

Gauge — Vertical staff to 6 feet on upstream side of first pier from right abutment. 
Zero on the gauge is 0.00. 

Channel and Control — The channel is straight for 200 feet above and below the section, 
both banks are low, but do not overflow, the stream never assuming flood propor- 
tions. The bed is composed of solid rock, with two channels during the low-water 
period. During the high-water stages all the water is confined between the two 
abutments of the bridge. 

Discharge Measurements — Made from the (bridge during the high-water period, and 
from a permanent wading section located 30 feet upstream during the low stages. 

Winter Flow — Ice has little effect. 

Regulation — The Town of Owen Sound has a dam 300 feet above this section that is 
used to supply water for domestic uses. 

Diversions — An additional 750,000 gallons of water per day should be added to the daily 
flow at this section, which is the approximate amount diverted. 

Accuracy — There are not sufficient readings to define a curve at all stages. Discharges 
between gauge heights .90 and 1.40 are fair. 

Observer — Myrtle Cook, Ashley P.O.

ELEVENTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE 



No. 49 



Thames River (Main Stream) at Kilworth 

Location — At the highway hridge known as Kilworth Bridge, 2 miles north-west of 
the Town of Byron, near the Village of Komoka, Township of Delaware, County 
of Middlesex. 

Records Available— Monthly discharge measurements from March, 1912. Daily gauge 
heights from March 13, 1914. 

Drainage Area — 1,270 square miles. 

Gauge — Vertical staff to 12 feet on centre pier. The zero of gauge (elevation 6.00), 
which has remained unchanged since established, is referred to a B.M. (elevation 
31.21) on downstream side of right abutment. 

Channel and Control — The channel is straight above and below section for about 600 
feet. The banks are high, and do not overflow or shift to a great extent. The 
control, however, is not stationary under high-water conditions. The velocity is 

high. 

Discharge Measurements— Made from bridge at all stages. 

Winter Flow — Ice is present during the winter period, and measurements are made 
to determine the winter flow. 

Accuracy — During flood stages the high velocity necessitates the taking of surface 
readings. The station rating curve is fairly well defined for ordinary flows. Excep- 
tional conditions existed in the spring of 1918, making the accuracy of estimates 
during the freshet of that year very problematical. 

Observer — James : Bourne, Komoka.

Thames River (North Branch) near Fanshawe 

Location— At the highway bridge near Fanshawe Post Office, between lots 8 and 9, 
concession 4 and 5, Township of London, County of Middlesex. 

Records Available— Daily gauge heights and discharge measurements from May 13, 
1915. 

Drainage Area— 585 square miles. 

Gauge — Vertical staff to 12 feet on right abutment, downstream side. Elevation of 
zero of gauge 4.00 is referred to a B.M. (elevation 30.00) on tension rod, down 
stream side, 170 feet from the initial point of soundings. 

Channel and Control — The channel is straight above and below section for 500 feet. 
The bed of the stream is composed of clay and gravel, the banks are high and will 
not overflow. The channel and control is shifting during high-water periods. 

Discharge Measurements — Made from the bridge and at a permanent wading section 
about 500 feet above during low water. 

Accuracy — This curve is fairly well defined. 

Observer — Allen Donley, London.

ELEVENTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE 



No. 49 



Thames River (South Branch) near Ealing 

Location— At the highway .bridge known as Vauxhall Bridge between lots 10 and 11, 
concession B, between Townships of London and West minster, County of Middlesex. 

Records Available — Daily gauge heights and discharge measurements from May 11, 
1915. 

Drainage Area— 515 square miles. 

Gauge Vertical staff to 12 feet on downstream side of first right pier. Elevation 
of zero of gauge is 4.00, referred to B.M., elevation 30.00. 

Channel and Control --The channel is straight above and below for 800 feet. The banks 
and control are shifting under high-water conditions. 

Discharge Measurements — Made from the bridge. During the extreme low water a 
wading section is used. 

Winter Flow — The relation of gauge height to discharge is affected by ice during the 

winter months. 

Accuracy — The rating curve is fairly well defined up to gauge height 11.00 feet. 
Observer — Edna Leathorn, London.

ELEVENTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE 



No. 49 



Grand River at Belwood 

Location— At the bridge in the Village of Belwood, on the 7th concession, Township 
of West Garafraxa, County of Wellington. 

Records Available— From August 31, 1913. 

Drainage Area— 280 square miles. 

Gauge — Vertical steel staff to 12 feet on right abutment. Elevation of zero of gauge 
is 1366.00, which has remained unchanged since established. 

Channel and Control — The channel is straight for about 400 feet above and 600 feet 
below gauging section. The channel bed at the bridge is solid rock, and permanent 
at all stages. At the permanent low water section, however, the channel is shifting 
under high water conditions. 

Winter Flow — During the winter months the relation of gauge height to discharge is 
greatly affected by ice, and readings are taken to determine the winter discharge. 

Accuracy — The river stage at this section is not affected by any power plants above 
or below. The rating curve is well defined, and estimates are considered good.

Observer — H. Hutchinson, Belwood P.O.

Grand River at Brantford 

Location — At the Toronto-Hamilton-Buffalo Railway bridge in the City of Brantford, 
County of Brant. 

Records Available— Discharge measurements from August, 1912. Daily gauge heights 
from July S, 1913. 

Drainage Area— 2,000 square miles. 

Gauge — Vertical steel staff, to 12 feet on left abutment. Elevation of zero of gauge is 
643.00, which has remained unchanged since established. 

Channel and Control — The flow is confined between the abutments of the bridge at all 
stages. The bed and left bank is shifting under high water conditions. 

Discharge Measurements — Made from the bridge at all stages. 

Winter Flow — The relation of gauge height to discharge is seriously affected by ice, 
and measurements are made to determine the winter flow. 

Regulation — During the low water stage serious fluctuations are noticeable at this 
location. The observed mean gauge height does not always give the correct mean 
daily stage. 

Accuracy — With the exception of a slight angle at section these records can be classified 
as good. 

Observer — John Anguish, Brantford.

ELEVENTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE 



Nc. 49 



Grand River near Conestogo 

Location At the highway bridge 14 mile below the Village of Conestogo, Township of 
Woolwich, County of Waterloo. 

Records Available— From July 16, 1913. 

Drainage Area— 550 square miles. 

Gauge — Vertical steel staff to 12 feet on the centre pier of bridge. Elevation of zero is 
L0 17.00 feet. 

Channel and Control — The channel is straight for about 300 feet above and below the 
gauging section. The banks are low and liable to overflow. The bed is composed 
of gravel, and all the water is confined between the abutments of the bridge, except 
at a very serious flood. In flood stages the banks and bed are liable to shift slightly. 

Discharge Measurements — -Made from the bridge during high water, and at a per- 
manent low water section located GOO feet upstream during the low water period. 

Winter Flow — The relation of gauge height to discharge is seriously affected by ice 
during the winter season, and measurements are made to determine the winter flow. 

Accuracy — The slight shifting of the channel has little effect. The rating curve is 
well defined, and records are good. 

Observer — Geo. Schinbein, Conestogo.

Grand River at Gait 

Location — At the Concession Street bridge, in the City of GaU, Township of North 
Dumfries, County of Waterloo. 

Records Available— From July 21, 1913. 

Drainage Area — 1,360 square miles. 

Gauge — Vertical steel staff to 12 feet on first left pier of the bridge. Elevation of zero 
of gauge is 851.00, which has remained unchanged since established. 

Channel and Control — The channel is straight for 1,000 feet above and below the 
section. The bed is solid rock formation. Residents each year encroach on the 
natural channel by building up the banks to protect their lots from washing away. 

Discharge Measurements— Made from ibridge for high stages, and at a permanent 
wading section 150 feet upstream during low stages. 

Winter Flow — Ice slightly affects the relation of gauge height to discharge during the 
winter, and measurements are made to determine the winter flow. 

Regulation — This section is subject to serious fluctuations in the river stage caused by 
the operation of the Gait dam situated % mile above. 

Accuracy — The rating curve is fairly well defined, and records are good. 

Observer — Charles Parker, Gait.

ELEVENTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE 



No. 49 



Grand River at Glen Morris 

Location At the (lien Morris bridge, in the Village of Glen Morris, Township of South 
Dumfries, County of Brant. 

Records Available— Discharge measurements from August, 1912. Daily gauge heights 
from July 21, 1913. 

Drainage Area — 1,390 square miles. 

Gauge — Vertical steel staff to 12 feet on the second pier from the left bank. Elevation 
of the zero of gauge is 801.00, which has remained unchanged since established. 

Channel and Control — The channel is straight for 1,000 feet above and below the 
section. The bed of the river is composed of gravel and boulders, and banks are 
permanent. The bed and control is shifting under high water conditions. 

Discharge Measurements- Made from bridge during the high water stages, and at 
permanent wading section located 150 feet upstream during the lower water periods. 

Winter Flow — This section is seriously affected by ice which usually floods, forming 
as many as three or four layers of ice with water between them. Measurements 
are made during the winter months to determine the winter flow. 

Regulation — This section is subject to fluctuations in the river stage, due to the storing 
of water, during the night and at week ends, by the Gait dam, located eight miles 
above. 

Accuracy— Owing to poor natural conditions, the liability of the control to shift and 
back water caused by ice. the records cannot be considered better than fair.

Grand River at York 

Location— At the highway bridge in the Village of York, Township of Oneida, County 
of Haldimand. 

Records Available— From June 25, 1913. 

Drainage Area — 2,280 square miles. 

Gauge — Vertical steel staff to 6 feet on the first pier from left abutment and 6 to 12 
feet on the left abutment. The elevation of zero is 593.00, and has remained 
unchanged since established. 

Channel and Control — Th flow is confined between the abutments of the bridge at all 
stages. The bed of the river is well protected, but shifting during flood stages. 
A partly demolished dam about 200 feet downstream affects flow, especially at 
low stages. Part of this old dam is washed out at each flood period. 

Discharge Measurements — Taken from the highway bridge, and at a permanent low 
water section located 800 feet aibove during the low water period. 

Floods — No floods of a serious nature have occurred here since the spring of 1912, 
when the dam below the bridge was wrecked, the water cutting around the right 
abutment, greatly increasing the width of the channel. Village residents state the 
water rose to a gauge height of 606 feet, which would mean approximately 100,000 
second feet. 

Winter Flow — The relation of gauge height to discharge is seriously affected by ice, 
and measurements are made to determine the winter flow. 



Regulation — The nearest dam is at Caledonia, five miles above. The 
operation of the mills causes daily fluctuations in the gauge heights. 



intermittent 



Accuracy — The conditions of flow are good, except for the fluctuations caused through 
the Caledonia Mills. Well-defined rating curves have been established, and the 
records can be considered good. Semi-daily gauge heights will not give a good 
representative mean. 

Observer — Harry Brown, York P.O.

ELEVENTH ANNUAL REPORT QF THE 



No. 49 



Speed River at Hespeler 

Location At a point 1"" Cee1 below the jail, which adjoins the power house, in the 
Town of Hespeler, Township of Waterloo, County of Waterloo. 

Records Available — Discharge measurements from July 10, 1913. Dally gauge heights 
from October 23, 1913. 

Drainage Area — 250 square miles. 

Gauge Vertical steel staff to 12 feet on jail wall adjoining power house. The eleva- 
tion of zero of the gauge is 935.00. 

Channel and Control — Straight for about 300 feet above and below the gauging section. 
Loose gravel forms the bed of this stream, which is decidedly shifting. The banks 
are low, and overflow when the water rises 2 feet above normal. Weeds at the 
control and in channel have a decided effect at the gauging section. 

Discharge Measurements — Made from a permanent wading section 100 feet b2lo\v the 
.uauge during the low stages, and the dam 400 feet above will be used as a weir 
during the flood season. 

Winter Flow — The relation of gauge height to discharge is somewhat affected by the 
presence of ice for a short period during the winter season. 

Regulation — A dam 400 ft. above this section causes serious fluctuations in the river 
stage during the low water period. 

Accuracy— Owing to the shifting bed and the presence of weeds at and below section, 
greatly interfering with the metering of stream, these, records can only .be classed 
as fair.
